Abstract

The modeling of semiconductor devices almost always is done in order to try to explain or understand the underlying physics that produces an observed set of terminal characteristics. Thus, the model must incorporate the relevant physical processes, and good model development must rely on both intuition (of the theoretician) and experimental observations. We discuss the approaches used in developing models and the special problems that arise in submicron semiconductor devices.
